Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before.

In The Shadows of Life Featured Photographer | April

“I  truly believe as an artist, an image is created from within.” We are so excited to share this artist with you this month. It is so obvious she creates from within. Her images portray such powerful connections, delivered with a punch of intimacy and closeness like no other. She leaves no other option to us as viewers than to be immediately captured and mesmerized. Please journey with us into the world of Catchnkiss Photography.

 

 

Childhood and lifestyle images are often full of color and joy. How do you feel about breaking the perceived rules of photography by portraying such images in a different way?

I truly believe as an artist, an image is created from within, if I feel good about my art and it speaks to me then nothing else matters, I’m happy to portray art the way I perceive it.

For us as a group, the use of deep strong shadows is what sets the mood in our lifestyle images.  How do you define “mood” in your own lifestyle photographs?
Mood for me is created through the use of light. How much light I allow in sets the mood for my images.

Why do you like portraying your lifestyle images in this way?  What draws you to this style of photography?
I love portraying my images this way because it creates reaction, if i get a real excitement about an image then i know its right for me. Light draws me in. I get super excited to play with light and I know when there is light, the use of shadow and tone come alive.

I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness because it shows me the stars.

My soul is full of whispered song, my blindness is my sight, the shadows that I feared so long are full of life and light. ~ Alice Cary
